We were trying to stay in Sedona, but no room, so we found Distant Drum, south of Sedona in Camp Verde, which is about 3,000 feet lower in elevation, hence a lot hotter, and not many trees. However, this is a very nice desert landscaped park. Smooth check-in. Friendly staff. Roads are paved, big rig friendly. Sites are concrete, level and have picnic tables. Our pull through site #79 was narrow and long, but positioned oppositely to preserve a little front yard space. The park has a new, well maintained look to it, and all connections worked well. Ran our two ACs the entire time. It has a very nice dog run, pool and other amenities. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Friendly and helpful staff. Always clean, very convenient to highway. Some sites are bit snug, but it seemed like all had more than adequate for slideouts, plus some. Hookups were convenient . We would and will return. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The only reason I didn't give this park a 10 is because the wifi was sketchy. Otherwise, it was great. The staff are very helpful. It is right off of the freeway, but we didn't hear any road noise at all. I did have a little trouble when I was calling to make my reservation - no one answering or returning calls, but it was worth it when we got there.

Tips for other Campers:

We visited Montezuma Well and Montezuma Castle. We also visited Jerome (a really quaint old town on the side of a hill). Sedona is right up the road, and there are some great golf courses there, as well as fun shops. There is a casino very close to the resort, with a shuttle for guests. Phoenix is about an hours drive, as is Flagstaff. It is a convenient location.

We have been stopping at Distant Drums for years. The park has consistently been a nice, clean campground, with a convenient location, not far from Sedona. Sites are well spaced and staff is friendly. We usually just stay one or two nights while passing through as there isn't a lot to do in the immediate area, but a great stop over. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Park was fairly easy to navigate. Very nice plantings, grounds kept very clean. It was very quiet inspite of being full and not too far from Hwy. We could not receive wi-fi where we stayed. Roads are asphalt, sites are concrete. Sites are good size. Neighbors not too close. My husband tried to walk dog in utility lane. It as unfortunately used by many people who did not pick up after their dogs. Shame on them. We stayed here for 3 nights on vacation. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice park. Stayed over a weekend, very quiet, clean. It is located near Sedona so it's a great place to stay. It's across the freeway from a casino so if you like to play this is your place. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a nice campground. Very clean, nice pool and hot tub, nice laundry room, paved roads. Easy to navigate, it is close to I-17, so there is some traffic noise. Internet is poor, as it did not work at the site for most of our stay and when it did work it was only because I had an external signal booster. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This place could only accommodate us for 6 days (we wanted a week) so we got stuck paying the daily rate, making for a very expensive stay. We were parked in Site 66 which is EXTREMELY tight - even the camp host told us he doubted we'd fit with a 36' fifth wheel and he told the office not to put any fifth wheels there - but alas, they told us Site 66 or we had to leave because they had no other spots. We managed to get in after a stressful time backing up about 20 times. The host was helpful backing us in. The pool, hot tub, fitness center, and laundry room were all nice. Only 4 washers and constantly a line for the laundry room - they could use more washers. I will echo everyone else when I say the spots are VERY small. Between our truck and our fifth wheel we had about 5 square feet of room for our daughter to play outside. We literally had other RV's feet from ours on all sides. Water, electric, sewer - all fine. Didn't try the cable. Office staff exceptionally nice and helpful. Overall we did not like the cramped quarters and having to pay such a high rate for 6 days. It would have been nice if they gave us weekly and just let us stay 6, it would have saved us $$. No playground for kids was a slight negative for us - we did see other kids there too. Otherwise the park itself was clean and well managed. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a premium Snow Bird location. Most sites are back-in with a few pull-in. I've not seen pull-in sites before but seems practical for the big diesel pushers they put there. Most sites are concrete double width so parking your toad or truck is not a problem. The large staff keeps the park immaculate. There are no discounts during the Snow Bird season, hence the Value rating. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Would have rated the park much higher, however the roads within the park are extremely narrow, much narrower then any other park we have been in, making the parking of RV's very difficult. Not likely to return. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

If you are looking for peace and quiet and space to stretch out, this is NOT the place for you! If you are looking for a place to stay overnight, this park will do. We'll start with the positives aspects of this RV park. +The front office staff was friendly. +The park was clean and well-maintained. +All trash was picked up by staff on golf carts. +The grounds support staff delivered/picked-up an air compressor that I needed for a tire issue. +The grounds support staff escorted us to our site and assisted in parking. +There is a casino and gas station directly across the freeway. +The weekly rate was very reasonable. For our needs and desires, the negatives far outweighed the positives. -The overwhelming majority of sites at this park are very, very close together and fit together like puzzle pieces! For example, the tow vehicle/parking spot for the site behind us was directly parallel to the rear of our trailer. -Our site only allowed for space enough for our trailer and truck; there was no place for our chairs, tables, etc. other than in front of the trailer near the road or the three feet of space between the trailer and our truck! -The WiFi was completely unusable! All of the long-term folks shared the same story and all of them relied on their own mobile hot spots. -There were no tables or space to relax on our site. -No fire pits and/or open fires. -When we opened our shades, it was like we were at an RV dealership! All we saw, within feet of our trailer, were our neighbors' RV's! -The freeway noise was intolerable! We ended up leaving two days early because it was impossible to sleep and/or relax! -As there were many long term tenants, one of them had their coaches power-washed starting at 8:00 A.M.! In conclusion, we only recommend this park for an overnight stay. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Nicest park we have stayed in. Easy in and easy out, close to highway. Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent fenced in dog park. Concrete pads and patio with picnic table. First time we stayed at a site that was a buddy site (patio to patio), but it was fine. Sites could be a little bigger but they are so well landscaped and taken care. That makes up for the size. We were in a pull thru, other sites are a little roomier. Highly recommend. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park with one major exception. Power was poor when we were there, enough that my EMS shut my AC down (voltage dropped to under 104VAC). That should not happen in a new park like this, and it wasn't just me. It is a well laid out park, showing someone designed this to maximize use of space. Interior roads are paved, but a bit narrow. Sites were concrete, just large enough for a big rig, but mine and most others were a bit off level. Enough that I needed to add boards to get level. Hot tub was great. A nice park, but I would not stay here again due to power issues. Our rate was a group rate, we had a rally here. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Motorhome.
